Ukraine Conflict Sides Agree to Swap Captives: Luhansk Leader
Donbas independence supporters and Kiev-led forces have carried out several prisoner swaps after reaching a shaky ceasefire agreement in Minsk in September, which stipulated an all-for-all transfer of detainees.

During a new round of Minsk negotiations earlier this week, Kiev authorities and Donbas independence supporters agreed to carry out another prisoner swap.

Last week, Vladimir Ruban, the head of the Ukrainian prisoner exchange center said that some 400 war prisoners were being held captive by Kiev, while about 600 persons were detained by pro-independence forces in eastern Ukraine.
